Brewery: Okanagan Spring
Location: British Columbia (Vernon)
Type: 1516 Bavarian Lager
Taste: It’s quick, sharp, alcohol-y and earthy. There’s too much of an alcohol flavour for me, I feel like their efforts to keep to the Bavarian purity law (barley, hops, yeast, water) didn’t result in enough of a flavour to mask/compete with the alcohol-ness of it. There still is a fresh earthiness to it and I do rather like that bit. No aftertaste which is nice, one tiny wave after a swallow and it’s gone. It’s solid for a domestic beer, but not a premier world class beer.
